Kenzoki Amazing Waters

Skincare, my my, Leen, it really has been a long time! True, and this article really has been a long time coming. And when I say it’s overdue, it really is overdue. So overdue, that it went on holiday with me early July (proof, this Instagram post), and I still haven’t written about it. I have used about 75 % of the bottle and I still haven’t written about it. That kind of overdue! So, let’s stop the lamenting, and start focusing on the product. Remember my minimal make up summer? Minimal make up also required less cleansing products at night, but still the Kenzoki Amazing Cleansing Water and the Kenzoki Amazing Exfoliating Water were put to the test rigorously. Both refreshing and uplifting in feel and purpose, that’s not the only thing they have in common. The star ingredient in both formulas is ginger extract, rich in mineral salts and essential oils and said to perfect for toning, revitalizing and all-round perking up of the upper layers of the skin. The additional Yuzu extract in the cleansing …

Kenzo Is My Tribe and Blue Is My Totem

Kenzo has slowly but steadily been taking over our hearts and minds as the ultimate urban brand, cool and sassy but also wearable. Tongue in cheek form and function! I still mourn not getting my hands on those drop dead gorgeous neon yellow espadrilles this past summer, and who can forget their infamous tiger sweater? For their latest fragrance drop, they felt like a little shake up of the current perfume traditions and go about creating it a little bit differently. Starting from their desire to create a scent that would introduce unisex scents to the large public, noses Antoine Lie and Jean Jacques followed their urban hearts and came up with not one but three scents to represent today’s generation. Three wayward but universal scents that can be worn by both men and women, depending on their mood, interests and personalities. All three named Totem, but with a subtitle to refer to their characteristics: Woody Citrus (yellow), Woody Floral (orange) and Woody Fruity (blue). Completely against my usual preferences (lilies all the way!!), I …

Kenzoki Barefeet Fantasy Massage Balm

As much as I owe my feet all the credits they should get (they do take me everywhere my head wants to go), I definitely do not give them the love they deserve. My feet have this tendency to react strongly to really hot or cold weather, standing up for a long period of time or dancing the night away, so most days, I end up with sensitive, painful and swollen feet that cry out for a good massage. I must have tried every foot cream and massage technique on the block these last few blogging years, and where some have brought the much wanted relief, others failed miserably! Cue the Kenzoki Barefeet Fantasy Massage Balm! Kenzo has been tickling my interest of late, somehow their skincare never really caught my eye. Quite a shame, cause look at how beautiful that packaging is!! Take the lid off, and you’ll find a thick, luscious cream with the consistency of butter cream frosting. As if that wasn’t enough to make me start massaging my feet immediately, the soft scent of …
